This restaurant isn't bad, but it's not great. The food is decent, especially for a Thai place in the middle of nowhere. The service was painfully slow. This is a family restaurant and it is obviously understaffed. We had to get menus, napkins, and silverware ourselves due to inattentive waitstaff.

The food was tasty enough but we had to wait for ages to get it because the kitchen staff and the waiting staff seemed to be totally overwhelmed

The reviews warned me of slow service and they nailed it. We were pushing two hours by the time we left. Very understaffed- I was only asked for a water refill when the check came. My drunken noodles were just ok. Not much chicken but good flavor. I was chilled the entire time being seated 15 feet from the door.... More

The absolute best Penang curry I've ever had in CA. A bit slow in the service but definitely worth it!

This Thai restaurant is ran by a Thai family & the food is great. I eat there at least once a week, whether it's the Yellow Curry, one of their soups or my all time favorite #24 Beef salad. Sometimes I request this salad without beef, the dressing is so good. We've been eating here for 13 years now and... More

Some Tuesdays I'm sad, because that's the day that Royal Siam is closed. The lunch special, with soup, wonton, egg roll, rice, and entree, is the best lunch deal in town. Royal Thai Basil was my go-to dish for a while, but lately I've been branching out to the curries, which are flavorful but not spicy unless you ask them... More

This is the only Thai food spot in Joshua Tree. It's definitely not bad, but not the best. The Pad Thai was great and they are able to do vegetarian dishes for all of the entrees (with tofu).

I am a repeat customer. This place is a locals' favorite. Dont judge a book by its cover, this place is as clean as they come and the kitchen is spotless. Although the decor could stand some updating, the food is always perfect. Family owned and family run, you cannot find better thai food in California.

My wife is Thai and a very good cook. Normally she complains about "American Thai" cooking as it sweetened and the usual time consuming Thai preparation is lacking. Not here. In years of hunting around we have found only three restaurants that satisfy her demand for authenticity in the entire L.A. Area and this is one. We visit there about... More

We ate here 2 years ago and rated the restaurant favorably. The waitress said management has not changed, but the food sure has. The Thai spices in the tom yum were overwhelmed by sweet sugary taste; spices in the salad were drowned out by gobs of iceberg lettuce and tasteless chunks of chicken. Disappointing.
